We report these findings back to the CDC, and they use that information to help determine how to formulate future vaccines. "We don't want anybody going through what we had to go through this past month".
"In terms of whether the flu season has peaked or not, we really don't know", Price said. For instance, in 2016-17, there were only 128 cases through the same time period and 41 in 2015-16.
